Thread Name: BS: Best Movies You'd Never Heard Of??
Subject: RE: BS: Best Movies You'd Never Heard Of??
A long thread---just glanced. Did anyhone mention the wonderful British Film from about 195?---Private's Progress? Best line to me in it---Private does not want to get out of bed ---Seargent ask him what his problem is---" I am feeling a bit fragile today". What follows is hilarious. Also--another British entry---The French They Are A Funny Race---and never forget I'm Alright Jack.

On the U S side I doubt people have not heard of the classics like Shane, Best Years of Our Lives, and Death of A Salesman. And, recently, House of Sand and Fog---the award people really don't see quality when it is given to them on a silver platter.

There is one film, however, that is recent that, I think, one should forget about---the critics raved about it and it never showed up in any theaters. I finally rented it---now I know why it never appeared anywhere---this study in obscure crap is called Northfork.   Perhaps someone can tell me that this mish mash was all about---it ranks along with Ishtar and other bombs
